Save the Whales postcard campaign to save the Vaquita Porpoise!!! NEEDS YOUR IMMEDIATE ATTENTION!

I wish there was a way to shout, scream, cry, beg, to give this maximum exposure. There are only about 12 vaquita left in the world. They live in the upper Gulf of California and this is not a sub-species or a separate population. They may go extinct soon. The vaquita only became known to the wider world in the 1970's. They are a beautiful small porpoise.

Do you want to look back and remember doing nothing as the species goes extinct?

Save the whales would like the postcards returned to them by January 29. Please pass to friends, family, school groups, coffee shops, neighbors, pets, strangers, not-so-strangers, loved-ones, exes, in-laws, out-laws, PLEASE PASS ALONG.


Dear Richard,

Thank you for your interest in engaging in the vaquita postcard drive. We have until the end of this month to collect all the postcards and or letters that will be delivered to the Mexican Embassy in bulk. The postcards are not being mailed but delivered to the embassy for more impact.

The easiest think to do would be to have you take the info on the below postcard and write it out in a letter. You can add your own unique message to this.
Be sure to include your full name, age, zip code (like we have on the post card).

Please mail your letter to Save The Whales in order to arrive by the end of January 2019 and I will include your letter with the postcards and artwork from students.
Our mailing address is :
Save The Whales
1192 Waring St.
Seaside, CA 93955

Feel free to contact me if you have further questions.

Critically endangered marine mammal, the vaquita, NEEDS YOUR HELP NOW!!!

Current aerial surveys estimate the population of the vaquita at less than 30 and attempts at captive breeding lead to the death of all 3 of these shy, beautiful porpoises.
The only group that appears to be doing anything constructive (I contribute, but I'm not a member or employee) is the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society. Some people consider them controversial (I do not), but they are leading an effort in cooperation with the Mexican government to save the vaquita. They are conducting anti-poaching patrols and removing the nets that are killing the vaquita and other aquatic animals in the Gulf of California (including other critically endangered species).
I'm considering dropping my contributions to all other environmental groups and I'm praying the population will stabilize in the next couple of years.
Please consider supporting the Sea Shepherds. If you can't please check out the video and pass it to someone who may be interested.
